CORTEC Receives SIL Certification for CRV Valves
02 December 2018
CORTEC, a leading manufacturer of high-quality API valves and manifolds, has received a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) certification on its Model Series “CRV” Pressure Relief Valves and Model Series “D” and “LD” Trunnion Ball Valves, which verify the safety of the products.
The SIL certification provides a quantification of the reduced likelihood of a hazardous event from occurring and assures that an independent third party reviewed the safety of the design and function of the product.
Stephen Corte, vice president of marketing and business development, CORTEC, said, “Over the years, CORTEC has worked hard to continually evolve our products and push the boundaries of performance and safety for our customers. The SIL certification qualifies our products for new applications and provides a high level of assurance to our users that they are working with equipment that can be relied upon when needed most.”
While historically CORTEC’s product line has been heavily upstream focused, the addition of SIL capable products coupled with expanding controls package offerings will serve to significantly expand the types of applications CORTEC can serve going forward.
